Preparing for Your Dental Appointment

Your dentist appointment is right around the corner! While it may be something that you dread, it’s necessary. An important reminder is to not rush through your appointment in case you have any questions or concerns. Oral health should be a major concern for every patient, and your Stamford Dentist is here to help you prepare for your appointment.

Make a List
Rushing through an appointment can stop you from asking your dentist important questions that you had. Either you forget your inquiries, or don’t believe that they’re urgent enough to mention, just so you can get out of there faster!

If you wait to ask your questions for another time, there may be oral pain that wasn’t there before! The reason for your appointment is for your dentist to dedicate that time to you. You’ll feel much more comfortable, relaxed, and prepared for your appointment if you have everything you need.

Update Medical History
Whether it is your new medical insurance or letting your dentist know of any new medicine you’re taking, this information is valuable for your appointment. Though your history may not all have to do with your oral health, this can impact your check-up or procedure in multiple ways.

Schedule Next Appointment
When you’re done with your appointment, don’t forget to schedule the next one! Keeping up with your bi-annual visits will only benefit your oral health. If you leave the office without making the next appointment, you’re less likely to follow up at a later time to make it.
